CAVEDAL | CAVEDALE | CAVEDALI

Cavedale, very very rare, is specific of the Udine area, Both Cavedal and Cavedali are almost unique, they could all derive from the archaic term cavedio (Roman-style atrium). perhaps meaning the profession of caretaker or porter of a patrician family, we also consider that in the Venice of the 1300s the hospital of a firm was a kind of administrator, less likely a derivation from another meaning of the word cavedale (capital).
